Exclusive clip introduces you to what lies “BENEATH”Movies/TV,News Michael Gingold
There’s terror underground in the upcoming IFC Midnight release BENEATH (no relation to Larry Fessenden’s big-fish flick of the same title). Check out an exclusive clip after the jump.
Directed by Ben Ketai and starring genre fave Jeff Fahey (THE LAWNMOWER MAN, PLANET TERROR), BENEATH was inspired by actual events and debuts on VOD this Friday, June 27, followed by theatrical release July 25. The synopsis: “At a coal mine in a blue-collar town, it’s the last day of work for veteran miner George Marsh [Fahey]. His daughter Samantha [Kelly Noonan], a feisty environmental lawyer whose politics are bitterly opposed by her father, celebrates the occasion by accompanying him underground. She’s escorted by old flame Randy Bennings [CABIN FEVER’s Joey Kern]; no sooner do they descend to the coal face, however, than a drilling machine malfunctions and punches through a supporting wall. A cave-in kills several workers and several others go missing. The crew foreman, Mundy [Brent Briscoe], is grievously injured.
“The shocked survivors retreat to a claustrophobic rescue chamber. While they wait for surface workers to reach them, they hear terrifying, almost-human sounds from the bowels of the mine. Samantha begins experiencing horrific visions, and several of the men panic, are separated from the group and are gruesomely murdered by unseen assailants. As the air runs out and the death count rises, those who remain fight to separate their worst fears from reality.”
